All-Star Talk With Chris Bosh
In part two of my conversation with Bosh, he gave me his thoughts on Mo Williams (who got in because of Bosh's injury), the H-O-R-S-E competition and which one of his teammates has the best trick shots. We discuss it all, after the jump.
Brett Pollakoff: When you see Mo Williams this weekend, are you gonna tell him he owes you big time? Is he buying when you guys go out?
Chris Bosh: (Laughs) No, you know what? I felt that Mo was an All-Star whether I was playing or not. He's very deserving.
BP: Do you buy into that, that a team with a record like Cleveland's absolutely deserves more than one, or do you think it's based on player by player?
CB: I think it's based on player by player, but in some cases, your team's success and your success can kind of bump you up a little bit. You can tell how a guy plays if he's an All-Star or not, Mo Williams, he's played like it.
BP: Lately especially.
CB: Yeah, and lately especially. And just to handle that kind of pressure, he hasn't been on a team that wins like that before, you couldn't tell. But he's doing his thing.
BP: They're doing H-O-R-S-E this weekend, how would you do in a H-O-R-S-E contest? You got any trick shots?
CB: I'd suck, man, I have no H-O-R-S-E shots. (Laughs) I'd just shoot a three, shoot a bank shot, there's nothing crazy I got.
BP: Is there anyone on your team that's always pulling out the trick shots in practice?
CB: Jason Kapono.
BP: He's the one huh? What's his best trick shot?
CB: I've seen him throw it off the wall, throw it off the side wall into the main basket. Or you know those side goals? It might have been him, might not have been him. Someone threw it off one of those backboards and it went in the main goal.
CB: Yeah. It's a total waste of time. (laughs)
